Global leader in printing and marketing ranks 226th in magazine’s elite franchise rankings
DENVER – Feb. 11, 2020 – AlphaGraphics, a leading provider of printing and marketing solutions, recently ranked in Entrepreneurmagazine’s Franchise 500®. Placement in the Franchise 500® is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500® ranks AlphaGraphics at 226 for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability and brand power.
“The 500 companies on this list all have something in common: They understand what consumers want now,” says Entrepreneur editor-in-chief Jason Feifer. “They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand like Dunkin’ that’s ranked highly on our list for decades. But either way, making our list means they’re forward-thinking, nimble, and closely in touch with their customers’ needs—because in an ever-changing business environment, that’s what a franchise must do to thrive.”
The key factors that go into the evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
“Our continued placement in the Franchise 500® is really a testament to the outstanding work and determination of everyone at AlphaGraphics,” said Ryan Farris, President and COO at AlphaGraphics. “We’ve committed ourselves to building an exceptional franchise system for all of our franchisees. With our recent growth and newly developed franchisee tools, we’re confident that we will continue to deliver on the promise of the AlphaGraphics franchise.”
Over its 41 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. AlphaGraphics’ position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
